Sonia
Sonia M. S. is 34 years-old, married with 2 children. The children are ages 3 and 15 years respectively. Sonia has worked for 2 years selling new clothes and now wants to sell second-hand clothing. The loan that she requests will be used to build a sales stall in her community. This loan will help because she will have a fixed place to sell her merchandise and thus will not have to go out into the street to sell it. This is the first time Señora Sonia has requested financing from FUDECOSUR. She hopes that she can contribute to the studies of her children and have a better financial income.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

FUDECOSUR works in one of the poorest regions of Costa Rica, where microfinance institutions (MFIs) are scarce or have a hard time keeping up with demand for small loans. By providing mostly agricultural loans, FUDECOSUR reaches rural borrowers that many MFIs consider to be too risky. However, this has also made it more difficult for the organization to find stable sources of capital to lend. Kiva's flexible, risk-tolerant capital plays a critical role in helping FUDECOSUR grow its portfolio and support even more borrowers.
